This page contains PUBG tips and strategies for vehicles and driving from the team working on PlayerUknown’s Battlegrounds and PUBG Mobile.
Find the Right Car
PUBG Mobile is littered with vehicles, but most are abandoned and too damaged to be drivable. Learn the visual profiles of the drivable vehicles so you don’t waste time.
Certain vehicles lend themselves to certain situations. Motorcycles and dune buggies can offer some nice speed and handling, but leave driver and passengers more exposed to enemy fire. More armored vehicles like the VW Bus and Jeep keep those inside safer, but could be more dangerous in…other ways.
Hands at 10 and 2
Driving in PUBG Mobile is easy to learn, but like real driving, difficult to master. The handling of vehicles can differ greatly between types, so take care when steering. Put simply: not all cars are created equal.
PUBG Mobile employs a physics engine that can make your car react in a realistic way to bumpy, unstable terrain, so head’s up: you will end up going airborne. If you’re not great with bumps, stay between the lines and stick to the road for a (generally) smoother ride. Try tapping the arrow buttons while driving to make smaller, more accurate adjustments to your car’s direction. Need to make a 180 fast? Give it the ole’ lead thumb.
Deer in the Headlights
Typically, your better instincts would tell you to avoid driving directly over someone. Not so in PUBG Mobile -hitting another player with your vehicle will result in a quick, easy kill.
Be careful though: zeroing in on a player while you’re driving and attempting to hit them head on can be harder than you think, and it’ll also give your potential roadkill a direct line of fire through your windshield.
Is the enemy team joyriding in a vehicle? Don’t be afraid to light them up, whether you’re in a car or not. Players in cars remain vulnerable to bullets, grenades and other weapons, but can be harder to hit thanks to their increased speed. If you’re trying to shoot car to car (or just shooting an enemy car, on foot) be sure to lead your shots to allow for bullet travel time. With some practice, you’ll be spraying down entire teams inside the VW Bus in no time.
Bullets in Mirror May Be Deadlier Than They Appear
Remember, if you’re driving a car, your hands are occupied and you can’t shoot. Your fellow players, on the other hand, can still do damage from their passenger seats. If you find yourself in an automotive firefight, your passengers should try their best to return fire and buy you some time to drive to better cover.
Unfortunately, when driving solo, you are pretty much exposed to enemy fire, so if an enemy has a bead on you, your best bet may be to stop the car, get out, and use the car itself as cover. From there, hopefully, you can return fire and kill the person ruining your Sunday drive.
If you do decide to use your car as cover, keep an eye out for fire and flames. As enemy players unleash bullets into your vehicle, it will eventually start smoking, catch fire, and then explode.
And no, you don’t have car insurance. And yes, anyone too close to the car will be eliminated. Use this to your advantage when engaging enemies in their own cars. High caliber weapons like rifles and machine guns can make short work of most of PUBG Mobile’s vehicles if you’re hitting your shots.
